Groping suspect scheduled to be arraigned

CHULA VISTA - An El Cajon man accused of grabbing and groping a teenage girl on a roadside near Glen Abbey Cemetery in Bonita was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon.

23 year old Century Leo attacked the teen in the 3200 block of Bonita Road shortly before 11 a.m. Monday, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

Investigators say the victim fought off her attacker, flagged down a motorist, got into his car and made a 911 call while she and the driver kept the alleged assailant in sight.  As a deputy arrived in the area to investigate, Leo tried to escape by running into an overgrown open area where he was arrested a short time later, sheriff's officials said.

Leo was booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of assault with intent to commit rape.  He is being held on $200,000 bail.0
